TWO men were remanded to prison yesterday after they were arraigned in Magistrate’s Court on firearms-related offences.

Dominique Dorsette, 22, and Anton Moss, 19, appeared before Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt facing charges of possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition concerning an alleged seizure on Tuesday, January 3.

It is alleged that the pair, being concerned together, were found with a black and silver Bersa pistol and two live rounds of .380 ammunition for the weapon without being the holder of a certificate or license to possess the items.

Both Dorsette and Moss denied committing any crime when called on to enter a plea to the charges.

They return to Magistrate’s Court on March 7 for the start of their case.

The accused men were denied bail, however, and were remanded to the Department of Correctional Services as the court does not have the discretion to consider bail on the charges levied against them.

Both were advised of their right to apply for bail in the Supreme Court.

They could face up to seven years incarceration if convicted at trial.
